Counting Down the Days to Christmas with the Great Big Toys”R”Us Book + Giveaway
The holidays are almost here and with them comes the nostalgia of some of my favorite childhood memories. I remember how excited I was as a child when the Great Big Toys”R”Us Book came to our home in the mail. It was the ultimate toy guide and I would literally spend hours looking through it – circling the items I wanted to add to my Christmas Wish List!
Our kids were super excited when we received The Great Big Toys”R”Us Book of Awesome for each one of them. It was even more real for them when we surprised them with a trip to Toys“R”Us itself! We headed to Toys“R”Us and let them each go on a shopping spree (with a budget of course)!
The first thing we noticed when we walked into Toys“R”Us was the display of the Great Big Toys“R”Us Book of Awesome! I love how easy Toys“R”Us makes it for you to find this great catalog. Plus, there is a super awesome coupon in it where you get a $10 Toys“R”Us Gift Card with your $75 purchase (*note: there are items that are excluded – see coupon for details). The gift card you receive with your purchase will be good from 12/1/15 through 12/20/15.
New this year, Toys“R”Us has introduced an augmented reality experience through which kids are able to bring their favorite toys from The Great Big Toys“R”Us Book of Awesome to life within The Geoffrey Shuffle app game (available in the App Store® or Google Play®). In the palm of a hand, kids can examine their favorite toys by zooming-in to see intricate details, spinning or walking around pages of the interactive edition of The Great Big Toys“R”Us Book of Awesome for different angles or capturing photos of their favorite toys within the game.
To play, using an interactive edition of The Great Big Toys“R”Us Book of Awesome (which I will send to you and can be found at your local “Toys“R”Us Store), players should look for a golden Geoffrey coin, located at the bottom corners of the book’s pages. Once located, hold a smart phone or tablet over the respective page and the game will begin loading. The game encourages players to find Geoffrey as he and two other kid-favorite licensed characters, such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Barbie, Darth Vader and more, hide in shuffled gift boxes.
Upon completing the game, players can enter Geoffrey’s Awesome Christmas Sweepstakes for a chance to win awesome prizes, including a $2,000 Toys“R”Us Gift Card and a Beaches® Resorts Luxury Included® Vacation.
If you haven’t had a chance to check out The Great Big Toys“R”Us Book of Awesome, I would definitely encourage you to head over to your local Toys“R”Us and pick up your very own copy! Not only are there great gift ideas, but there are also some sweet coupons and deals you’ll totally want to take advantage of for the upcoming holiday season! Deals within the catalog are in effect from Sunday, November 1 through Saturday, November 21.
1 lucky reader on The Mommy-Files will win a $25 Toys“R”Us Gift Card!!!
